Call for participants: Understanding identity and ways of viewing oneself in self-injury
Rate this news item:
We are looking for individuals at least 16 years of age who are members of this message board (forum) or who are not members, but who have visited this message board in the past to complete a series of questionnaires about how you view yourself and about your experiences with self-injury. We are interested in hearing from those who currently self-injure OR have in the past.
Participation is completely voluntary and will take about 60 minutes (or less). The study involves completing different online questionnaires. These can be completed at your own convenience – at a time and in a place that is comfortable for you. However, the questionnaires must be completed in one sitting.
Participation is also completely confidential. This means that anything you say will not be shared with others. No identifying information (apart from your age) will be collected.
Although we will ask you for your email address, your email address is only collected to assign you a unique password that allows you to access the study questionnaires. Your email will also be used to contact you if you wish to be entered in a draw to win one of four $25 CAD gift cards from Amazon. Your email address will not be linked to any of your responses.

For those who choose to participate, your email address will be entered into a draw to win one of four $25 CAD gift cards from Amazon. Odds of winning will depend on the number of participants (approximately 100 participants are anticipated).
If you have any questions about the study, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Lewis (stephen.lewisuoguelph.ca) or the student coordinating this research study, Ilana Goldsmith (igoldsmimail.uoguelph.ca).
